PHILADELPHIA -

Two people have been arrested in connection with the beating of a cab driver earlier this week in Southwest Philadelphia.

Police confirmed Wednesday morning that Nahfeeh Williams, 18, and Dawand Williams, 25, were arrested Tuesday night.

Sources tell FOX 29 News that the two are cousins.

Two men were seen on surveillance video leaving SEPTA's 69th Street Station, then getting into a cab and having the driver take them to 82nd Street and Lyons Avenue.

Once there, the suspects attacked the driver, then stole 100 bucks and debit cards from him, police reported earlier.

The cabbie needed 100 stitches after the attack.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
